The Year of the Owl
Last year it was the bird silhouette. This year it is the owl. These wise little creatures are showing up everywhere, from fabric to fashion to toys to home décor. A recent search of etsy showed just how big the craze is. Here’s a peek at some that caught my eye. Grafton Flea Market last summer for the bargain price of a quarter. Originally, I just picked it up for the small wooden embroidery hoop but I liked the little fellow and decided to keep him. He now proudly sits above my sewing table, just over a painting of a wooded area. How appropriate.
